Background

For the past year, rightwing billionaires Rupert Murdoch and the Koch Brothers have insisted Congress slash spending on everything - except enormous tax cuts for themselves.

Last month, their Tea Party Republican henchmen demanded $100 billion in immediate cuts, and $4 trillion in cuts over 10 years.

Yet last week, Republicans John McCain and Lindsey Graham had the nerve to demand a brand new war in Libya - one we can't possibly afford.

As economists say about lunches: there's no such thing as a free war.

Tell Congress: Not One Dime for Libya

PetitionThe wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have cost over $3 trillion, with no end in sight.

And every single penny was charged to our uncontrolled national debt, even as Republicans endlessly denounced the immorality of that debt.

At a time when tyrants are murdering civilians in numerous countries, why are we bombing Libya?

Is it just because John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Joe Lieberman went on TV to demand it? Why do three TV Senators get to demand wars?

The Constitution requires majorities of both houses of Congress to authorize wars. Tea Party Republicans insisted they would strictly follow the Constitution. So why didn't they hold a vote?

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) will introduce an amendment to upcoming bills to block any funds for attacking Libya.

Every "progressive," "fiscal conservative," and "Constitutional defender" who opposes this amendment will be exposed as an utter fraud and should be defeated next November.
